This report explores how faith-based organizations are understood and operate in Pakistan, focusing on Karachi within the wider context of Sindh province. It focuses on six case studies and looks at the varying role of religion in these organizations. They are then placed within the wider context of the development sector in the region, and are compared with professional development organizations for which religion has no apparent role.
